County Kildare has a wealth of history and beautiful sites for any visitor.
Leixlip or Léim an Bhradáin in Irish is directly translated to Salmon Leap. This was the home to Arthur Guinness’s first brewery…read on here about A little history of our town
Castletown House was Ireland’s first Mansion built in the Palladian style. We are proud to have this most beautiful Georgian Palace minutes from the Leixlip Manor Hotel. The Parklands and House are worth visiting and there are events taking place throughout the year.
The old town of Celbridge is at the end of the main driveway at Castletown and is known as the birthplace of Arthur Guinness, linking it and Leixlip to Arthurs Way.
Leixlip is located on the border of Kildare and Dublin making us an ideal base to explore both. Dublin Zoo is 20 minutes from the hotel and Tayto Park 30 minutes. Newgrange is 35 minutes from the hotel so guests can explore centuries of Ireland’s Ancient East without having to move hotel.
For a birds eye view of Kildare, Wicklow and Dublin guests at Leixlip Manor Hotel have a great opportunity to take to the Skies. Our Neighbours at Weston Airport have fabulous tours: Scenic Tours at Weston Airport
